TUNIS – Tunisian President Kais Saied has announced plans to amend the constitution and form a new government months after he dismissed the prime minister and suspended parliament in moves his critics called a coup.
Speaking to two TV stations after an evening stroll through the heart of the capital on Saturday, Saied said he would form a new government “as soon as possible” after selecting “the people with the most integrity”. But he declined to give a specific timeline. Saied also said it was necessary to change the constitution.
“The Tunisian people rejected the constitution,” he said, while adding that the charter is “not eternal”. We can introduce amendments to the text,” he said.
Elected in late 2019, the legal theorist and former law professor has billed himself as the ultimate interpreter of the constitution. He invoked that power on July 25 to fire the prime minister, freeze parliament and assume all executive powers.
The power grab came amid chronic legislative infighting that had crippled governance and was followed by a sweeping anti-corruption drive that has included detentions, travel bans and house arrests of politicians, businessmen and judicial officials.
Saied has yet to appoint a new government or reveal a roadmap towards normality, despite repeated demands by political parties.
